Half Tuck

I’m still in denial that it isn’t summer yet. I will wear my summer clothes! To be fair, with Washington anytime it makes it over sixty degrees it is shorts weather. Bright colors also make me feel like it is sunnier than it actually is.

I decided to try the half-tuck today. I think I like it (when I’m not irritated that it’s unsymmetrical). It gives off that effortless casual vibe, but I’m not sure I pull it off well enough.

So the reason today’s outfit post is ridiculously late is because a friend of mine wanted to expand her portfolio and I was her model. She stuffed me in some of her super fun clothing (like corsets!) she’s made and I wore it out and about while she snapped shots of it.

Shopping in the kid’s shoe section yields some amazing finds–especially shoe wise. My favorite pairs of sandals are ones that were not made for adults.

I’ll probably talk about it again in March, since that is my first blogiversary, but I feel like I’m really starting to get it. And by it, I mean style blogging and finding myself and my style. The past two weeks (aside from H is for Headwraps) have found me really finding my style and wearing outfits I love. Instead of the odd one out being the outfits I love, now the outfits I don’t love are becoming far and few between. I’m liking where I’m going.

This skirt is one of my favorite thrifted pieces. I purchased it for $1. However, I almost never wear it. I just never knew how to style it. However, I like where I’m going with it. And can I just say I’m so happy I picked up this brown cardigan over X-mas? Seriously, it goes with so much of my wardrobe.

I’ve been wearing these Madden girl boots a lot lately, but I haven’t ever taken pictures of the outfits I’ve been wearing them with. They’re super comfortable, and while they make my legs look a bit stumpy I don’t care! I also think they keep this look from becoming too “school girl.”

As for the hair, I slept in braids on Saturday night to get some soft waves. I’m sick of my stick straight hair, and I really want to add a bit of softness to my outfits, so expect more curliness in the future.

Pink Plaid

I’ve kind of become obsessed with plaids and button-ups. This shirt was a Black Friday purchase, and I kind of wish I’d picked up another in a different color. Maybe after Christmas?

In other news, I slightly altered this outfit from what I wore on Tuesday. The original shirt I was wearing has my place of employment’s name across the front. However, it was a yellow shirt. So I just switched out the shirts, but otherwise exactly the same.  (I mean, I hardly changed anything at all! But in the interest of full disclosure and all…)

And I remembered jewelry. I know, you’re excited since I almost always forget any sort of jewelry. Plus I feel like dangly earrings and a necklace is overkill (studs and necklace, however, is acceptable).

Of course, these boots have pretty much become my winter uniform.
